IMCA moves from principles to practice with the launch of environmental sustainability self-assessment tool
The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) has launched a new online self-assessment tool to enable Members to track their progress against Environmental Sustainability expectations in their Recommended Code of Practice launched last year.
The tool, which has been developed for IMCA Members’ internal use, presents their self-assessment score and, once sufficient submissions have been made by other IMCA Members, a comparison with other users’ outcomes is given.
Nadine Robinson, IMCA’s Technical Adviser for Environmental Sustainability explained:
“The online self-assessment tool enables us, individually and collectively, to reflect on how IMCA Member companies and we, as the offshore marine contracting industry, are addressing the material environment and climate-related topics identified in our Recommended Code of Practice. I am excited to see how far we have come as an industry since the Code’s publication in May 2021 and to measure our progress over the next year or two.”
“We recognise that Members are at a differing stages of their environmental sustainability journey, which is why we have worked hard to develop a facility that encourages members to share their progress, without judgment. In participating in the initiative, they will also be able gain insights on how they are doing relative to their industry peers, while being assured that their own data is only visible within their company.”
The self-assessment tool is available to Member companies on IMCA’s website. Further information on IMCA’s Recommended Code of Practice for Environmental Sustainability can also be found in the C-Suite ‘At a Glance’ document IMCA_Environmental.Sustainability_At-a-Glance-May2021.pdf (windows.net)
